    The Frasier Street School is shown where the post office stands today. The High School (now North) was just completed and dedicated in November of 1957. Westerly Parkway ends at the High School. Beyond it is farmland.

    1971
    Both High Schools are now completed (South in 1962) and Westerly Parkway has been extended. The area is being developed but lots of farm land still exists only a few blocks away.
